Here we go!
Medium to full bodied style, matured in both ex sherry (80%) and ex bourbon casks. Only 7,800 bottles produced and now generally in short supply worldwide!
This malt is all about precision and refinement…nothing is out of place: from the restrained nose of fruit cake with marzipan and a hint of pine smoke to the very long, lightly peated, crisply malty and fruity palate and dry smokey finish, this malt hums. And keeps on humming for quite some time.
Tasting notes from the distillery as well: "Nose: Full of authority. Rich and creamy at first, the nose develops to reveal vanilla, ripe fruits and marzipan before hints of sherbet, almonds and strawberries tempt you onwards to the first mouthful. Palate: A classic full-bodied dram. Thick and oily in texture with an extremely fruity and mellow taste which gives way to a sweet liquorice and aniseed flavour as it opens up. Hints of liquorice and aniseed. Finish: Sweet and chocolaty with some coconut, the finish is long and consistent with a pleasant smokey tingle."
